Submissions of papers on financial research – including such topics as risk measurement, regulatory capital and liquidity requirements, and the interaction between regulation and the cost and availability of credit – are being sought for a September conference sponsored by the federal insurer of bank deposits.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) is seeking the submissions for its Sept. 6-7 18th Annual Fall Research Conference, set for the agency’s L. William Seidman Center in Arlington, Va. Papers are due by June 14; submitters will be notified of acceptance by July 15.
Sponsored jointly by the FDIC and the Journal of Financial Services Research (JFSR), the two-day conference is also seeking papers for a special session about the 10 years following the 2007-08 financial crisis. “The Decade After the 2008 Crisis” will focus on topics in submitted papers about the implementation and implications of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank) for regulated institutions and shadow banks.
According to the FDIC, papers will be selected for presentation based on reviews by FDIC economists, associate editors of JSFR and the organizing committee for the event.
